Sunday, 4/24/11: Happy Easter... and travel day

Happy Easter!

Yes, this was a travel day.  We packed up and left Small Country Campground near Louisa, VA, about 12:45 PM – another “early” start
– and headed toward Richmond, VA, by way of I64, then I295 to Route 1 north.  We headed up to the Wal-Mart in Ashland where we "rested" for about an hour or so.
 Then just before 3 PM we headed off to the Ashland KOA.  We had stopped in there on Friday and made a reservation for Sunday.  Our friends at the desk, Terrie and Jill, came on duty at 3 PM, and we wanted to time our arrival to coincide with their shift.  We got all checked in and set up.  Total travel time (not counting the Wal-Mart "rest period") was about 70 minutes, about 60 miles, and 8.6 mpg.  Tonight we watched The Amazing Race and just relaxed.

We had planned a nice Easter dinner of ham steak, yams, and green bean casserole.  However by the time we got settled in, we both got lazy, bailed out on that plan, and just had sandwiches for dinner.  We’re often content to be "on our own" when it comes to meals.  We got into that habit during our working years, and we haven't quite broken out of it yet.  It works for us though.

The next few days will be "routine" days for us:  running errands, taking care of stuff over at the house, and continuing our preparations for fulltiming on the road.  Hopefully we'll get an offer on the house soon and get it sold.  Then we can really get on with our new lifestyle.
